Feel Starstruck with Star Themed Bridal Lace
The stars have always been a source of fascination for human beings who, for millennia, have gazed at the night sky and wondered at its mystery and beauty. Generation after generation of artists have been inspired by the stars and their influence can be seen in all artistic disciplines, including that of couture fashion.
Here we look at four styles of star fabric inspired by the beauty of the stars and the constellations they appear to form.
The name of this star lace is a clever piece of wordplay: 'Vedette' is the French word for 'star' in the sense of a celebrity.
Any bride who dons a wedding gown made using this enchanting fabric will immediately get that celebrity feeling as the sequins that highlight the embroidered star-shaped motifs catch the light.
Organza fabric is similar to chiffon but is heavier and has more body. Sheer and crisp with a tactile wiry feeling and high sheen, Stardust polyester organza is perfect for making trains, overlays and full skirts thanks to its delightful handle and drape.
This fabric is available exclusively in white or ivory but, for a silk version available in more colors, check out Evolution.
A simple six-pointed star motif is endlessly repeated, creating a hypnotic yet calmly-ordered visual display. The pattern of stars is so strikingly beautiful that the edges of the lace have been left plain, allowing the stars to take centre stage.
A pure silk sequin fabric, Stars couture embroidery is based on an ivory georgette fabric. The majority of the sequins used for embellishment are translucent but are interspersed with silver sequins that are super-reflective, calling to mind the exquisite beauty of a starry night.
